Intensive field trip based subject held at the Victorian Marine Science Consortium Laboratory in Queenscliff.

Students need to arrange their own accommodation in Queenscliff and transportation to and from field sites for the duration of the course (indicated as Teaching Period). The LMS subject pages are a forum for students to make arrangements to share accommodation and cars.
The final exam is in on the Parkville campus on the date indicated as "Assessment Period End". Other than a (non-mandatory) review session, there are no activities between the teaching period and the final exam.

This subject requires all students to actively and safely participate in laboratory and field activities. Students must be physically capable of undertaking outdoor field work and walk on rough terrain (rocky coast).
